1 (8 ounce) package
1 3/4 cups
1 1/2 tablespoons
chicken bouillon granules
ground black pepper
1 (12 ounce) package
imitation crabmeat, diced
shredded Swiss cheese
This was delicious. Substituted 2 cans of lump crab meat for imitation and added an extra 1/2 cup of italian cheese blend with additional milk to get it the right texture. Also, used a fat-free half and half to save on some of the calories. So good!
I have been making a non-dairy version of this for years. Saute sliced red onion, 1-2 serrano peppers (to taste) julienne any veg u would like, add 2 wine glasses of white wine, the juice of 1 lemon, salt & pepper and reduce to about half. Add crab meat and a large handful of chopped herbs - coriander/basil/thyme work great. Add cooked pasta, toss and enjoy!
I don't normally make any changes to a recipe the first time I make it , but I had some imitation crab that need to be used up, and I didn't feel like going to the shops (to much snow). Soooo I had to used evaporated milk instead of cream and had no swiss cheese so used a bit of brie, cheddar, and goat cheese. Excellent and so easy, a keeper for sure. Thanks for sharing will make to recipe next time.
This recipe is the bomb. I have made this several times and everyone just loves this. Easy to double for a large crowd and a splash of milk/cream to reheat in the microwave. The guys go nuts and everyone shows up for dinner when I make this-Thanks for sharing and a perfect recipe just as is.
Really good!! I had my doubts about using imitation crab, but the flavor was tremendous. Followed the recipe to a 't', wouldn't change a thing. Next time I'll add a spinach salad and garlic bread to the meal.
also add a can or two of crab meat it is cheap too at only a buck a can
This was absolutely delicious! My husband doesn't normally like sea food, but he LOVED this dish. I will definitely make it again. Super cheap to make, too! I doubled the recipe and it fed out family of 7 with some to spare :)
delicious quick pasta on the cheap!
